Mixed emotions surround the first LP release by Femur: からくり人形 by Martin Matiske, being this his second long play. The German producer presents a record of clear Japanese reminiscence in a dystopic-futuristic, robotic, sci-fi aura, all bathed by the rising sun.
After a sabbatical period, Roberto Auser makes a comeback with his analogical machinery with the exquisite mini-album called “Chaos Never Dies” on Femur. In this record he explores a broad range of sounds from minimal-electro to acid with a touch of improvisation from his particular perspective based in roughness, rhythm and immediacy.
The new Femur release features the Swiss duo Savage Grounds, agents of a dirty, raw and miserable sound. ‘Es un flash Electronico’ is a true exercise of proximity and freshness combining mid-tempo landscapeses with stimulating accelerated bursts. The release consists of 3 original tracks and a remix by Esplendor Geometrico, which elevates the original called Ultima linea to another dimension.
The 6th reference of Clasicos del Ruido is the result of a collaboration with Aitor Arch and Femur Club (club of reference in Madrid), and it is exclusively produced by artists who have performed at this well-known parties. The record opens with ‘Utopia’, a luminous, evocative and fascinating track by the German artist Hyboid, the undoubted leader of space and cosmic sounds. The British artist Kid Machine replicates on the same album side with the track ‘Fighting fears’, which includes echoes of disco and Den Haag sounds. On the other side of this 12inch, we will listen first to ‘Monologues’, a hypnotic-percussive track signed by the renowned French artist In Aeternam Vale. ‘Non auro, sed ferro’ by Hesperius Draco closes down the album, fizzing among their usual coordinates: horror disco, retro wave and soundtrack sounds. An album that brings together different artistic sensibilities in which both Clasicos del Ruido and Femur feel comfortable.
